How awesome!!!

I wish I knew of a resource like that :-/

You could use the paper for backing for your invitations, envelope liners for your invitations and RSVPs. You could also use the paper to create booklet programs, menus, etc. For your fabric, how much yardage is in one peice? That will really determine some of the items you can make with it. You could make a ring pillow and/or flower girl baskets. You could also make gowns for your girls and/or sashes. You could also make totes for your bridal party gifts. The list is endless…

You could use the fabric to cover your guestbook or even picture frames if using for them for anything to display. You could even use the fabric to cover any candles or candleholders/votives or any numbers or large letters to hang.

 how about a backing for a display board for photographs?

  with lace, but you get the idea.

Do you have enough fabric to make patchwork table runners?

How small are the squares of fabric? Fat quarters?

If you like the look of bunting that might be an option, or perhaps mismatched napkins in your colours?

 

As for the paper, have you thought about escort cards? Or thank-you tags on favours (if you are having them).

What are you doing for a guest book? I’ve been considering a scrapbook/photo booth book for a guest book, and will probably be making little cards for a ‘best wishes bowl’ — something like this:?

Maybe you could use some of the fabric to make one of a kind small “coin purse size” purses for you girls, so they have a handy little bag to keep all the small dodads organised in their handbag.. you could even fill them with stuff like aspirin, bandaids, nailfile etc..

OMG how awesome!! 

With the fabric you could do scarfs or hair accesories for the bridal party:)

And with the paper well, there a tons of things but my favorite is doing paper balls:) like these ones: 

Invite Mess Up…. Turned them into Decorative Paper Balls

Or you can do a scrap-book type of guest book? with pictures of you and your FI with different papers?
